Nails

My Nail Care Regimen

One of my faithful divas by the name of Bluebonnet67 has requested that I do a nail tutorial. She noticed that I always have my nails done in my videos, and was curious about my nail care regimen and the products I use. These two videos feature the tools I use to groom my nails, and the polish and designs I use to decorate them with. These videos are for you Bluebonnet67!

Thank You! Thank You SO MUCH! Both videos were great! I will be heading to Sally's this weekend to make some purchases and get started doing my own mani and pedis! Thanks again!

great vid! A cheap alternative for a nail corrector if you can't buy the pen... you can use a q-tip dipped in remover just pull some of the cotton off of the tip if it's the fluffy kind. I usually get the cheap kind out of the dollar store.

Thanks Fabulosity, and you are so right about those q-tips!

Seche Vite or Poshe top coats are the best I've used for fast drying top coats. You can literally polish your nails then go to bed after 5 mins and wake up w/ no sheet marks. Also, Sally Hansen makes a pretty good one called Insta Dri.

Great vids as always,

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

Gel-Nails, you are so right! I had some gel nails and they were whack! (They started looking dingy and you could see air bubbles in them). However, I've seen other ladies with gel nails, and they look fabulous, so you definitely have to go to someone who knows what they're doing!

Good information.

I came across many queries in several forums where people have been asking for advice on the best glue that can be used on nails and that is not only strong but also safe on nails. This was the same question I had sometime back when I used to apply nail gel myself. Initially the glue I got would never hold on the way it used to when done in the salon. I then came across the nail glue being sold on gel-nails which lasts very long and is pretty easy to apply. It provides a strong bonding for my nails and also does a great job in repairing the nail tips.

Most important of all is that this is strong glue I was actually looking out for and this is used by nail salons and nail artists for professional applications. It is available at a cheap price at gel-nails and I remember seeing it at a discount of 74% which is great. Maybe this can help if you also face problems relating to poor glue quality as I did earlier.
